An active brain is a healthy brain. Just like exercising your muscles to stay fit, you also need to train your brain. The good news is that challenging your brain is a lot more fun than squats, laps and curls — and you don’t need to change into anything lycra.
Keeping your brain active has its benefits:
- Improve your memory for both the little things (your cousin’s phone number) and the big (your wedding day)
- Have better focus and concentration the next time you’re trying to read on a crowded flight
- Be more alert even after a not-so-necessary three-hour meeting at work
- Elevate your mood after an unsuccessful day of bathing suit shopping.
